To add in-text citations go to the References toolbar in Word. There you should see the Mendeley Cite-o-matic panel. (If you don't see the Mendeley panel install the Word plugin:
1. Click in the document where you want the citation to go, then select Insert Citation.
On some Macs inserting will look like this:
Note: Make sure the style you want to use is selected. Here I have APA listed. You can always select another option.
2. A search window will pop up. Start typing information (title, author, etc.) from the citation you wish to use, or select Go To Mendeley to browse your references.
3. Once you have found the citation you need, click OK to add it to your manuscript.
To achieve this we will need to amend the style instructions that are applied to the author names. As we’re using IEEE as a basis, we can open this style for editing. By default the CSL Editor will add your name to the end of the existing style name to create a new style - the editor will always prevent you from overwriting the IEEE style, which you may need in the future.
With your new style open, the first step is to identify the component you intend to amend. In this instance, we know that we want to amend the author names - which are prominently visible in the Example Panel. Simply click on the author names from the first example citation. You should note that the active element in the Style Overview panel updates to reflect that the Names attribute is now the active element - the relevant element (in this case Bibliography > Layout > Author (macro) > Names ) will have expanded and been highlighted. You’ll also note that the Info Panel changes to reflect the options available to apply to this element.
